From the 2021 Architectural Portfolio: CREC Academy of Aerospace & Engineering Elementary School

April 15, 2022
CREC Academy of Aerospace & Engineering Elementary School was recognized in the elementary school category of American School & University's 2021 Architectural Portfolio.

Throughout CREC Academy of Aerospace & Engineering Elementary School in Rocky Hill, Conn., scientific wonder inspires the design and encourages exploration for grades pre-K through five. The radial layout provides a safe student gathering and play courtyard, separate from vehicular circulation. The interactive site also enables students to stand in the center of this courtyard to become the gnomon of a large sundial. During solstice and equinox events, students view the sun as it rises and sets through corridors that radiate from the center of the site.
